The tradition, the craft and the techniques, the handmade in small scale, unique, tradition connected and timeconsuming craft is the essence of Matter of Fabrics. Away from the massproduction and instead be a part of a slower and smaller process. Honest, present, more in balance with the nature.
In the making...
Loops forming a two-dimensional fabric from a one-dimensional yarn thread.
Knowing women (it was mostly women) hitorically used this technique for remake pieces from broken and small bits of left over textiles - to make new and beautiful pieces - the patchworks feels very up to date.
To weave is magic. To start with threads that grow into a fabric. Slowly and beautifully. A technical challenge if you want. Alot of skills needed to go deeper into the craft and the art of binding threads. One of my favorite techniques. I have done most of handweaving, but also tried the industrial.
Some other projects I am happy to be part of.
Reused and remade from an existing fabric at home.
This one in an old left over fabric designed by me - now a useful basic bag with little twist - used by my daugther - happy it is non plastic!
